Victory Social 2011

Last Saturday night, we saw a very strong attendance at Fota House Hotel for our victory social for the 2011 season. It was a marvellous organised occasion, in a spectacular setting. One must pay tribute to the organising committee of Norma Woods, Hillary O’Shea, Catherine O’Connell, Eoghan Heagrty, Jer O’Connell & Noel O’Riordan for organising such a excellent evening. Guests were treated to a lovely meal, while our esteems chairmen of our three clubs within the parish spoke. These were Eoin O’Riordan (junior club), Con McCarthy (ladies club) & Dermot McCarthy (juvenile club). Our guest speaker, East Cork board chairman Michael O’Brien thanked us for the invite to the dinner and preceded in giving his best wishes for the year ahead.

Medals were handed out to our victorious winnings teams. (Junior Ladies and the Under 21’s) Then, there were awards handed out to John Cashman for his part in the Cork Under-17 squad and to John Cronin – who had an excellent year, with being involved with the Cork U21’s (who won the Munster title)  and capped it with a wonderful performance in the county senior hurling final. Unfortunately, Carrigtwohill were not to be denied that day but John’s performance was seen by many as one of the more outstanding ones that day. Ella Ryan received an award for her part with the Cork Senior ‘B’ Team, who won last year’s all-Ireland. Leanne Woods got one for achievement in winning the east cork skills competition for 2011, also Jer O’Connell was recognised with an award for refereeing the Munster minor hurling final; one can hope that this will be a stepping stone to bigger things for Jer...

John Joe Regan gave a memorable, insightful and lively speech which was in tribute to the guests of honour for the evening, the 1961 Junior Football championship winning team. All members of that victorious panel who are still present or were represented on the night were given a token of appreciation for their efforts to rapturous applause. Afterwards we saw the very popular hell for leather, playing to the small wee hours. One can only assume after such a frantic and wonderful night that there a lot of sore heads (and bodies!!) come Sunday morning!!!
